    I have a friend who writes songs & sings, and I offered to help her lay down some tracks if she wants.

    What I am looking for, is a good piece of software that I can split the tracks (Guitar/Vocals), and overlay them back together.

    Also, what about a decent mic for not too expensive? What are the options?

    Video Editing i've done alot of, but never laid down my own tracks before.

    It is an Acoustic Electric Guitar... Not looking to do anything fancy at all.. Just looking to record it for her so she can listen to herself, and so I can even it out a bit, as her guitar tends to overpower her voice.
